Can he cancel his jump squat with crouch dash?It is actually a frame 11 option. Don't forget that this character has a frame 7 jumpsquat, so it is the 7 frames + 4 frame startup of up air.
Up smash OoS and up special OoS are both frame 12.
Up smash could be a niche option because of arm intangibility and 6% armor, but that is risky to use.
Up B straight up has no intangibility or armor, which is strange as this would be the type of move you would expect to have either.
And no, he cannot cancel his jumpsquat frames with his tilts, which would've helped out in that regard (although his OoS would still be questionable at best).
As a whole Kazuya has very lacking OoS options, potentially the worst in the game.
OoS options for Kazuya seem bad but against characters with good OoS not even crazy fast like GW, I'm just just trying to understand why he can't use crouch dash combos in place of standing your ground with shield out just waiting to upb.
